BoatU.S. offers boat tax guide

BoatU.S. recently developed a new online State Boating Tax and Registration Guide to help prospective buyers understand the taxes involved in purchasing a boat.

The guide allows boaters to search state by state and includes sales taxes, "use" taxes, any credits given on sales taxes for boats purchased in a different state, registration "grace" periods, title information and links to state boating registration and tax departments.

"Boats can be purchased at out-of-state boat shows," BoatU.S. government affairs program coordinator David Kennedy said in a statement. "And in some states, boaters need to be aware that they may have a limited amount of time to register their vessel or face additional taxes. We can help ensure that there won't be any surprises."
